A brief lockdown of North Carolina Central University's was lifted after the campus was given an "all clear."
NCCU's campus was on lockdown for about 25 minutes "following a reported incident in a residence hall."
Campus Police say there was an attempted armed robbery in Eagleson Residence Hall on the campus around 1:08 p.m. Friday.
The suspect fled and the campus was subsequently put on lockdown while the incident was investigated.
The suspect is described as a black male wearing a T-shirt with faded blue shorts and dreadlocks.
Police say there was also a report of a gunman in Mary Townes Science Complex, but that report was unfounded.
